Artist's Description

Alan Gardens, Toronto, Ontario, Canada July 2013

Taken from a website:
A giant asparagus-like stalk with buds reminiscent of broccoli has sprouted through the greenhouse roof at Allan Gardens Conservatory, majestically bursting almost two meters above the glass toward the sky.
After some 75 years of storing up energy, the agave americana will, finally, for the first time in its life, flower within the next few weeks, producing spectacular yellow blossoms. And then it will die.
This towering plant gives new meaning to the term late-bloomer. It has sat in the conservatory not doing much for likely as long as 50 years, says Curtis Evoy, Allan Gardens superintendent. Members of the Toronto Cactus and Succulent Club have estimated the plant’s age at about 75 years old.
